Shipping a car from Hawaii to Texas

How much does it cost to ship a car from Hawaii to the Texas?

A number of important factors determine the cost to ship a car. They affect both shipping within the continental US, and ocean freight to and from Hawaii.

Vehicle make and model together with the exact pick up and drop off locations set the base price for shipping. Whether you choose port-to-port or port-to-door service, it will affect the rate. For ground shipping, you can choose between open and enclosed trailer. Whether you are shipping a non-running, or modified vehicle, also matters. However, the deciding factor is current supply and demand situation.

Corsia Logistics - A Five Star Rated Company


Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

High five's all around! Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Kelly Torres

Excellent Organization Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.

Amy Nelson

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

How long does it take to ship a car from Hawaii to Texas?

Transit time from Hawaii to Texas will mainly depend on the exact delivery location. On average, it takes about two weeks to deliver a vehicle from Hawaii to a port on the west coast. To that we need to add the transit time to your final destination in Texas.

Due to the nature of the industry, we can only provide you with estimated delivery date. Unplanned for issues like port congestion, road traffic, weather conditions, truck breakdowns can cause potential delays. Therefore, if you need your car delivered on or by a specific date, make sure to discuss your options with your vehicle relocation expert.

What services does CORSIA offer?

When shipping a car from Hawaii to the mainland you have two main options:



Keep in mind that due to geographical reasons, all ports receiving shipments from the islands are located on the West Coast.

Shipping a car port-to-door
You drop off your vehicle at a port in Hawaii, and we deliver it at your desired location in Texas. You just need to make sure someone is present at the delivery location to receive the car. Should you need help arranging transport to a port in Hawaii, we can definitely assist. Make sure to inquire with our vehicle relocation experts before you book.

Shipping a car port-to-port

Port-to-port shipping means your vehicle will be delivered from a port in Hawaii to a port on the mainland. You will have to arrange for drop off and pick up at the respective ports. Track your shipment so that you can plan accordingly. Pick up your vehicle on time to avoid port storage fees.

Then you also choose from following car shipping services:

by carrier type: open and enclosed trailer

by time frame: standard and expedited delivery

Choosing a carrier type really depends on the type of vehicle you need to ship. Standard everyday sedans, such as your Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla usually go on an open-air trailer. If you need to ship a high-end sports or luxury automobile, or any classic vehicle you should choose enclosed trailer.

Standard car shipping means that a carrier will pick up your vehicle within few days. Expedited delivery could guarantee that your car is picked up or delivered on or by a specified date and time.

Open auto transport is the standard solution. It is faster and cheaper. Open carriers are readily available and this makes them efficient and preferred by private customers and businesses alike.

Enclosed auto transport is a preferred solution for sports and high-end automobiles. It offers complete protection from weather and road elements. However, it could take a bit longer to book and schedule. It is more expensive as well.

Enclosed carrier transport

What documents do I need when shipping a car?

For shipping from Hawaii to the East Coast, the following documents are required for your vehicle to be loaded on a vessel:

A valid photo ID

Vehicle Title

Certificate of Registration

Creditor/Lessor’ Notarized Statement (if creditor/lessor present on the Registration)

Notarized Authorization from the registered owner (if shipped by a different person)

At delivery, you will also be required to sign a Bill of Lading (BOL) which also serves as an inspection report.


Is my vehicle insured during transport?

While in transit on a vessel from Hawaii, there is limited liability in effect. The policy will cover any damages sustained during transport, not to exceed the market value of your vehicle.

As for ground transportation, by law, every car carrier in operation must have cargo insurance. A car carrier cannot operate without an active insurance policy.

Moving from Hawaii to the Lone Star State

Hawaii, the happiest state in the US, is made up of 8 main islands: Molokai, Oahu, Niihau, Kauai, Maui, Lanai, Kahoolawe, and the Big Island of Hawaii.

Don’t worry about Texas not being even in the top 10 happiest states in America — Texans are very friendly people who will welcome you with open arms and a big smile. When it comes to land area, Texas comes in the second position in the US with 267,339 square miles, which is 7.4% of US’ total area.

Home to over 28.7 million people, Texas is the second most populous state in the nation. And Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio are in the top 10 most populous cities in the United States.

Hawaii, in turn, has a population of fewer than 1.5 million people, and all its ethnic groups living in the isolated volcanic archipelago in the Central Pacific are a minority.

Do you know why Texas is nicknamed “The Lone Star State”? The territory used to be an independent republic from 1836 to 1845. The “Lone Star” can now be found on the Texas state flag; it also serves as a reminder of Texas’ struggle from independece from Mexico.

Getting used to new climate

Compared to Hawaii’s warm and moderate weather year-round, Texas is characterized by high temperatures and a dry heat that can take some time getting used to. If dry heat and high temperatures are not an issue, then you will not have to worry much about the weather. Texas’ weather varies from arid to humid. And since the state is very spread out, expect the weather to change from one part of Texas to another.

Learn about housing and living costs

Texas is well known for its affordable housing and living costs compared to other states in the US, especially Hawaii. If we compare Houston to Honolulu, the city with the longest borders in the world and the nation’s 11th largest metropolitan area, the overall living costs in Houston are over 90% lower than in Honolulu. Houston’s housing costs, in particular, are much lower than in Honolulu – over 280% less expensive to be exact.

Other cities in Texas are also more affordable than in Hawaii. So no matter where in The Lone Star State you choose to settle, you will enjoy the perks of living comfortably for much less money.

What to see and do in Texas

The state with the most farmland in the US is home to the world’s largest rose garden: Tyler Municipal Rose Garden which contains 38,000 rose bushes from 500 types of roses. If you love flowers, you may want to pack your camera and head to to Tyler, the Rose capital of America.

Other popular attractions in Texas are the 1,500-year-old coastal live oak near Fulton, Caddo Lake – the only natural lake in the country, the King Ranch, Big Bend National Park, River Walk Walkway, Alamo Mission in San Antonio, Padre Island, Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Zilker Metropolitan Park, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and Lady Bird Lake.

Moving to Texas with a car

Once your move to Texas, you will have 30 days to register your car with the TX DMV and submit all the other required documents, including proof of auto insurance, at your local County Tax Office. You can also transfer your out-of-state driver’s license at the same time you submit your car registration documents.
